Fat of the land and driftwood constructions.
So the weatherman was being silly when he said gale force winds on Saturday…He meant to say Boiling hot and No wind on Saturday and Incredibly Breezy and warm on Sunday..oh and Nail Everything Down on Sunday night because by the time you remember it, it will have already Blown Away to Australia. Last night I felt like Dorothy in the tornado part of the Wizard of Oz.
Yesterday we went a pickin’ our crops.
Food like this:
Mouth-watering cinnamon, cardamom & vanilla cupcakes*.
*Wheat-free of course.
Moving on – after convincing Kingoftheplayground that they were really rather sour and that there were much better things to eat in the veggie garden – we arrived and got to work.
thyme out. Oh hahaha.
We found some ridiculously big carrots:
This plants beautiful red flower is pollinated by sunbirds and had balloon-like seed pods. It has documented effects in treating very serious illnesses such as HIV and Cancer as well as their side effects such as anxiety, depression, TB and eczema. It is not, however, a miracle cure-all – its real benefits are to assist the body as an immune booster, is known to improve energy levels and gives an enhanced sense of well-being. Wow people…what are you waiting for??? Why am I drinking this coffee? ‘ Scuse me while I go make some Sutherlandia frutescence tea…….
Okay, feeling great, looking good. Where was I?
Went home. Taskmaster was pleased with our bounty of goods. I said If we were living in the country we would surely win a pig-on-a-string at a fair for these massive carrots? He said No, farmers grow them that size all the time. Well. Even Mandy Doll was impressed with this one….Taskmaster had 5 mins to spare. He had a couple of screws, some wire and a bunch of driftwood. He quickly whipped up two bed side table lamps and this really cool feature light for the Ecolodge. He’s like Fynbos McGuyver. Now I know how to wire up a lamp in a fix…so easy! Even Kingoftheplayground was teaching Pollox how to do it with a pair of blunt-nose scissors and some toilet paper. Dont ask.
